Draft at the brewery. This one pours a deep black color with some mahogany at the edges and topped by a small, foamy khaki colored head that leaves nice spots of lace on the glass. The aroma is nice and roasty with bitter chocolate, roasted barley, and dark roasted coffee. There is also some earthy hops on the back end as well. The flavor follows and shows more of the bitter, dark cocoa malts, roasted barley, and darkly roasted coffee. There is some milk chocolate sweetness to balance all the dry, roasty flavors. Some earthy hops add some nice bitterness on the back end. Medium bodied with ample carbonation that leads to a roasty and dry finish. This is a really nice session stout with good flavor.

Pours deep brown/black with nice roasted nut notes that flow into a dry but yet refreshing finish. Deep notes of light cocoa and nuts prevail.

Draft at Redlight Redlight. For a style Iím not usually a fan of, this is surprisingly drinkable. The signature toasted malt flavors from Cigar City are in there, which makes it a joy. Dry and roasty, without being chalky. Great flavors all-around and much better than most of this style.

32oz growler shared by ibrew2or3, thanks Dave! Blackish brown that letís some light through, loose khaki head. Nice balanced nose, coffee, licorice, cocoa powder, with some light vanilla and nut. Body is light with light but good feeling carbonation. Nice coffee bitterness, light cocoa and licorice in the flavor also. Nice stuff, thanks again Dave.

Pint at the brewery. Nitro. Pours a deep dark brown, almost black. Aroma is deep roasted malts, with little to no sweetness. Flavor is the same. Deep and dry, malty with a very faint caramel. Really nice flavor for a dry stout.

On tap at Vine & Barley. Creamy malt taste, with a bit of weak coffee flavor thrown in. So-so.

On tap at Capones. A gift sample from Matt Capone himself. Pours a dark brown color with an off white foam head. Has that sweet stout taste with a light mouthfeel to keep it refreshing. Notes of coffee and chocolate through the finish. Cigar City canít go wrong IMO. Much obliged Matt.

Pours black with a small off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate and coffee. Flavors of coffee, chocolate and roasted nuts. Kind of a slick mouthfeel with a rich toasted finish. An excellent Dry Stout.
